Rice blast (Magnaporthe oryzae)

Analysis of simple sequence repeat markers linked with blast disease resistance genes in a segregating population of rice (Oryza sativa)

S. Ashkani, Rafii, M. Y., Sariah, M., A. Akmar, S. Nor, Rusli, I., H. Rahim, A., and Latif, M. A., Analysis of simple sequence repeat markers linked with blast disease resistance genes in a segregating population of rice (Oryza sativa), vol. 10, pp. 1345-1355, 2011.

Among 120 simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers, 23 polymorphic markers were used to identify the segregation ratio in 320 individuals of an F2 rice population derived from Pongsu Seribu 2, a resistant variety, and Mahsuri, a susceptible rice cultivar. For phenotypic study, the most virulent blast (Magnaporthe oryzae) pathotype, P7.2, was used in screening of F2 population in order to understand the inheritance of blast resistance as well as linkage with SSR markers.
